Kwiatkowski a class act | Phenomenal Van Aert will win a Tour
14 min

The Ineos Grenadiers finally have something to be happy about with a maiden Grand Tour stage win for Poland's Michal Kwiatkowski ahead of teammate Richard Carapaz on the third and final day in the Alps.


Brad, who is again joined by Graham Willgoss, reacts to the Ineos celebrations and also gives a strong response to Jumbo-Visma boss Richard Plugge telling Eurosport's Orla Chennaoui he is '90-95% sure Primoz Roglic will win this Tour'.


But it is Wout van Aert who really excites Brad, and he believes the Belgian superstar can win a Tour de France title of his own who is a hot property in cycling that many teams would like to lure away.

Valgren interview and report cards for NTT and EF Pro Cycling
In the latest episode of the Cyclingnews podcast, brought to you by Sportful and Pinarello, we speak to Michael Valgren about his 2020 season, his time at NTT Pro Cycling and his move to EF Pro Cycling ahead of next year’s campaign.   The Danish rider spent two years on the African team and never quite managed to replicate the 2018 form that saw him win Amstel Gold Race but he talks about his motivation, why things didn’t work out and how he will fit into EF Pro Cycling’s roster. As well as hearing from Valgren, we also start our yearly report card analysis of the WorldTour teams and as Valgren features – and because there’s no real method – we start by taking a look at both NTT and EF.   NTT actually started the season incredibly well. They came into 2020 with arguably one of the weakest rosters of the WorldTour teams but they won six races by the time Paris-Nice concluded. They dominated a number of online races during lockdown but once racing resumed they struggled. Giacomo Nizzolo won the European Championships and Ben O’Connor took a fine stage in the Giro d’Italia but there was very little for them to celebrate.   They ended the year with eight wins but the season was really dominated by sponsorship issues and once more the underperformance of several key riders. Sponsorship issues created uncertainty and tension between the management before Assos stepped in to help the team going forward. We analyze the season for NTT, before Procycling’s editor Edward Picking – a former teacher no less – provides the team with a report card grade.   Then we head to EF, and the American team that went from 17 wins in 2019 to 17 wins this year. There was no Monument win this time around but the team were aggressive in every format of racing – they won stages in all three Grand Tours and finished on the podium in the Vuelta a España. They also won the Critérium du Dauphiné with one of the best days of racing we saw all year, and even if you strip out the wins they took outside of the WorldTour – for example, the wins in Colombia – they were impressive. Our presenters look back on the year for the team before Mr Pickering provides his end of season grade.   The Cyclingnews Podcast is brought to you by Sportful and Pinarello.    Sponsor message   Born in the Italian Dolomites, Sportful has been making athletes faster, more efficient and better protected since 1972.   Official apparel supplier to Bora-Hansgrohe.

Life Beyond the Peloton with Jamie Anderson & Bernard Moerman
In this special Telstra Connected Cycling webinar we are joined by Belgian cycling legend Bernard Moerman and Professor Jamie Anderson to talk about the theme of transitions. We explore why so many professional cyclists struggle with transitioning to a life after the peloton. On the flipside,  we also talk about how a bunch of former Australian professional cyclists have found their way into influential positions in the European cycling scene. In the last part of the interview we chat about the phenomenon of “Corporate Athletes” who throw themselves back into competitive sport after a long hiatus – and why doing so can help people to thrive in so many aspects of their lives. Based in Belgium, Bernard Moerman is a leadership mentor, career coach and storyteller who helps people to realise their inner potential. Prior to shifting his focus to working with business leaders, he spent more than two decades as a talent scout & manager, performance coach and Professional Cycling Team Director. See Bernard’s recent TED Talk here: https://youtu.be/p68eKVnu5_w  Jamie Anderson is Professor of Leadership & Strategic Management at Antwerp Management School, an executive coach and mentor to many former professional cyclists. Jamie is also a competitive Masters cyclist who has achieved podium results at UCI World Series Granfondo Events and many other world-level one-day and multi-day races for amateurs. Living in Belgium, he is currently European Masters Champion (M5) for the Individual Time Trial.  See Jamie’s TED Talk about work, life & cycling here: https://youtu.be/tmc6HohWVCs
